Summary

This illustration entitled, "A Congressional Deadlock", by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Post on December 27, 1906, shows a member of both the House and the Senate politely deferring to the other for getting the 50 percent pay raise legislation approved. Neither wanted to be the one to initiate legislation and face public ridicule.
